Hithika

Month and Year of Birth: March 2015

Hithika has hurt her right eye while playing in October 2017. Ophthalmologist, they consulted prescribed eye drops. Parents noticed white reflex in the same eye within few days’ time but ignored thinking it could be due to the earlier incident. They visited an eye care hospital in Kolar in December 2017 as her eye swelled. MRI was done, and she was diagnosed with unilateral RB. They visited NN immediately as suggested on 5th December. Her right eye had been enucleated on 6th due to the advanced tumor. She further received 6 cycles of chemotherapy and recovering well. She is now on 6 months follow up.

Iksha has been supporting her treatment as the father is physically challenged and unable to support Hithika’s treatment.
